I’d vote for Jujutsu just to avoid any confusion with Jiu-Jitsu (you wouldn’t want the DHS guys trolling this place …)

In all fairness though, aren’t Jujitsu and Jujutsu the same thing? It’s always been my understanding that the translation is phonetic, that “jitsu” and “jutsu” are the same thing, and the interpretation of which is correct completely subjective?

If you say Ju JITSU to a Japanese person, they won't know what you're talking about.

Ju JUtsu they will understand. So Jutsu is "more correct".

Early/poor translations before romanji was standardized. That the same thing like led to the kempo vs. kenpo debate.

Yes, because Jujitsu is usually used Western Jujitsu Organizations where Jujutsu (being the correct romanji) is used by Jujutsu Orgs that still have ties to Japan. As this is a JMA forum, I believe it matters.

Then phrost is smarter than you. There really is no such thing as "correct" romanji just various methods. There is no one true method. So it will remain JUJITSU because under several romanization systems it is correct.
